PALAPYE: The fifth of the seven rounds of the Botswana Motor Sport (BMS) league will be held in Serowe this weekend. It will be the third edition of the MmaBesi 200 quad and two wheeler bikes race.

As the sun is about to set in the motorsport league, a sturdy show is expected from top local riders who would wish to cap the year on a higher note.  The final rounds of the league will go to Maun and Orapa respectively.

All the categories will be represented in the Bamangwato capital.  In the quad bikes section, there will be competitions of the B3 quadbikes, B7 quadbikes, wildebeest junior quadbikes and the wildebeest senior quadbikes.

A mouthwatering competition, however, is expected in the two-wheeler bikes where a number of local top riders including amongst them the Serowe-born Vincent Crosbie, Cosmos Mamaloukus, Robert Pollock and Boineelo Rantao will be competing.

The four riders and other members of the national team who recently represented the country in Zambia will be battling it out in the B1 Junior bikes, the B2 bikes, and the B6 senior bikes. There will also be a competition for the B8 women’s bikes.

Serowe Extreme Bikers Club organises the race. The club’s spokesperson, Tshegofatso Sentsho said since the first event two years ago, MmaBesi 200 has grown in leaps and bounds. He said they are anticipating an increased number of bikers and spectators.  “Once again we will be hosting top riders and at a crucial time in the league. We anticipate a mouthwatering competition in the course and even a huge turnout over the

weekend. Our spectators enjoyed the past show and we are promising a double dose of what they got last year,” he said. He added that they have changed the route and expanded it to the nearby Paje village where the starting and ending points are situated.

He said during the alteration of the route, they ensured that the most popular spectator points remain. He said the new course is more ideal for both spectators and riders.

“It was a case of marking a strategic terrain to gain more spectators and increase the challenge for the riders. The terrain is a bit more challenging than the previous one, it encompasses sandy soils, valleys, rocky segments and muddy rivers, very ideal for riders and spectators.”

All affiliated members of BMS with insurance cover but not competing in the league are open to taking part in the wildebeest club for the fun riders. Sentsho said after the two previous editions they have been able to register new members at the club, which he hailed as a positive development.

“This event is a way of developing and taking the sport to the people and we receive interest after every edition. Our setback is lack of sponsorship,” he said. “We have sustained the event from our club coffers, but with the tremendous growth it is becoming a huge challenge with our limited resources.”
